Jane Goodall, a pioneering primatologist and one of the world’s leading experts on chimpanzees, turned 90 last week, and to celebrate, the team at Vital Impacts (previously) launched a new fundraiser in honor of her legacy.

In collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute, The Nature of Hope: 90 Women Photographers for Jane Goodall brings together dozens of images that reconsider our relationship with the environment. Included are stunning glimpses of animal affection like Daisy Gilardini’s touching shot of two polar bears snuggled together in Manitoba, alongside documentary works like Luisa Dorr’s “Brenda and Her Mother,” which centers on two Aymaran women wearing hats and polleras, skirts tied to their Indigenous heritage.

The 90 photographers included in the project—find the works of Beth Moon and Cristina Mittermeier previously on Colossal—consider Goodall a profound influence in their work. She “did more than just redefine our understanding of the relationship between humans and animals,” says Ami Vitale, the founder of Vital Impacts. “She shattered barriers and opened doors for women everywhere.”

All proceeds from The Nature of Hope will benefit the institute. The sale runs through July 2.
